External monitor doesn't work - CENTOS 6.3

Postby kvudaykumar » 2012/11/05 15:42:38


I have recently installed CentOS 6.3
Linux centos 2.6.32-279.11.1.el6.i686 #1 SMP Tue Oct 16 14:40:53 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I did observe that my external monitor (TV) is not being detected by the OS. I have used ubuntu / windows earlier and the same setup works fine.

H/W : DELL LATITUDE D620 (without any graphics card)

Appreciate any support.

Do you have the nvidia or intel video card? If you have the nvidia, you will be best served (IMHO) with the kmod driver from http://elrepo.org/tiki/kmod-nvidia
Did you use/try the blue "FN" key + the "F8" key. I don't have any of the D620's any more, but still have a couple of the D630's.
